    I do not have any of the items and I have never heard about "BB Micro" and "Archimedes"... My first CPU was 386SX :)

    Arghhh another one of these polls. They don't work LOL. You can't give people a multiple choice answer with only one option;). Add a combination of the above option big Z.
    I have in my parents loft an Atari ST, Amiga, Spectrum, Atari2600, Prinztronic, Nes, Snes, Gameboy original, Gameboy Colour, Gamegear, Xbox, PS2. Or rather I did last time I checked. My father is prone to what he calls Feng shui, not in the classical sense but rather piling loads of junk in his car and taking it to the skip. Silly sod threw out my Army reserve uniform I just hope I don't have to go to war to soon.

    God how I miss the ZX Spectrum just for the memories it brings up. Sitting for days at a time as a kid with my dad typing out a billion lines of code from the back of a magazine just to get a simple line-art pub darts game, anyone else remember it? I seem to remember a dog strolling into the bar and widdling. Bizarre. Ahhhh good times, good times. World was a lot less complicated then.


    The Atari ST has stirred up some memories of Turrican, Altered beast, Rainbow islands and Cannon Fodder. Oh and also who remembers ST Format the magazine that used to come with a cover disk, how on earth did they ever fit stuff on them:p.

    Nice thread thanks for the chance to relive a little of my childhood in my head.

    She looks like an actress in a film set in Ireland, can't remember the name of her or the film but she was kinda cute. It was a low budget film and was about a man who killed his girlfriend by accident, it got a bit twisted after that. She's a stage actress too. Please confirm Zardon.

    ok - she's "kinda cute" - for a bloody faced horror show freak.

    WOAH!

    Just a bad image - you have warped my fragile little mind...

    How about the old texas instruments. I remember buying books full of programs that would take hours to type in and then you could run a color line around the screen or make a tune of your own and stuff. You could buy tapes that sounded like a fax machine and it would hook up to the computer and you could play more"high tech" games. Later they came out with cartridges that slide into the side of the keyboard.

    I still have an Amiga 500 somewhere in my parents' house. The older computers I threw away. I even sold my ZX80 manual a couple of years ago on eBay (fetched 6.5 British Pounds, IIRC).
